NoXS Scale Manager

North Star NoXS Scale Manager

Environmental choices for water treatment

NS_NoXS+Chlorine+4500FilterFeatures and Benefits Include:

  • SMS anti-scale media – Reduces hard water scale from forming in plumbing and appliances.
  • Up-flow design – Increases contact time with media for improved scale reduction and higher flow rates.
  • By-pass valve – Allows for easy maintenance and servicing
  • Coconet-shell carbon* – Filters the water throughout the home without compromising water flow.  Removes chlorine taste and odor and eliminates the need for separate carbon filter changes.
  • Multi-wrap fiberglass reinforced tank – Durable; doesn’t deteriorate, rust, or corrode.
  • Self-cleaning distributors – Distributors exhibit excellent flow rates and are cleaned automatically by counter-current water pressure.
  • No electricity – Simplifies installation, maintenance and reduces electrical hazards.
  • No salt or added chemicals needed – Uses environmentally friendly “green” technology for areas with water or brine-discharge restrictions.
  • Zero waste water – No backwashing required and zero discharge.
  • Sediment filter – 50 micron sediment filter included with both systems.
  • Standard plumbing connection – 1″ NPT Male connection for easy installation.  Larger 1-1/4″ and 1-1/2″ plumbing adapters available.
